The next logical step in iPod evolution may materialise faster. Industry analysts believe Apple is set to show off a long-awaited video iPod that can play music videos and other visual programming. For months, industry watchers have been looking for Apple to roll out an iPod that can play videos in addition to music - and thwart any incursions on its music-player market dominance from the likes of Sony Corp. Apple maintains a stranglehold on the market for portable digital music players, with about a 75% share. During its last fiscal quarter, Apple said it sold more than 6 million iPods, bringing total iPod sales to more than 22 million units. Gene Munster of Piper Jaffray said that a video iPod would definitely have a "wow factor" upon its release but that it would need to cost less than $400 and have a sizable library of downloadable videos available when it launches in order to avoid becoming a niche product.Munster, though, added that a video iPod would "open the door for future product innovations as the company continues to branch out" into other areas of digital and mobile entertainment products.
